You were a topic of conversation last night one filled with love and admiration. Two grown men telling about things they had learned and admired about you. I see you everyday in your son, everyday he looks in the mirror and sees part of you staring back at him.
I didn't get to know you but the stories over the years I feel as I do now.
Thanks Mac for everything you did.
